How To Cut A Palm Tree Down In 5 Steps
Tree professionals suggest cutting palm trees that are 8 inches or less in diameter straight through. Follow these 5 steps below to properly cut your palm down using a chainsaw.
- Begin by making sure there are no trees, structures or utility lines nearby that could potentially be damaged by a fallen tree.
- Wear safety equipment, including chaps, gloves, closed-toe shoes and safety glasses.
- Fuel and start the chainsaw while following the manufacturer’s recommendations.
- Use the correct oil and fuel for the saw.
- Make sure to always follow safety and operating procedures.
- Use your hands to find the best spot on the trunk of the rotting palm to make your first cut.
- Oftentimes, the trunk of a rotting and diseased pam will be soft near the ground.
- Move your hands upward to find a hard surface.
- This will help to control the desired direction you’d like the tree to fall.
- Cut one-third of the way through the tree at an upward 45-degree angle.
- Make your cut about 1 foot above the ground using the chainsaw.
- Make this cut on the side of the tree in the direction you’d like it to fall.
- Make a second cut about 6 inches above your first cut, downward at a 45-degree angle.
- Remove the wedge at this time.
- Go to the opposite side of the tree to make a cut about 6 inches above your top cut.
- Cut straight through the tree until it begins to fall.
